So reviews for Suicide Squad are starting to drift in. Not off to a great start so far but we'll see how things change once more reviews come in closer to full release

Metacritic - 47

Rotten Tomatoes - 33%

Wait, we want bad reviews. Every movie I love gets bad reviews. Every movie that gets rave reviews turns out to be trash. #ageofultron

There are a bunch. Rolling Stone gave it 1 star.

Hey, BvS got a Metaric score of 44. If you liked that you should be OK.

That last part seems a bit harsh

I am sure the movie will be terrible. The previews were cringe-worthy and I did not see any suggestion of an interesting or original story. I can even get over bad acting and mediocre dialogue with a great plot - but I do not think we will find one here.

Go in with no expectations and you might avoid any ensuing disappointment if it sucks. I'll go see it regardless of any reviews.

Remember the Transformers movie? Crap reviews, great popcorn flick!

I only remember one Transformers movie and it came out in 1986.
Suicide Squad is just a comic book version of the Dirty Dozen, right? So it can't be all bad, hopefully. Toast is right on going in with no expectations.

I don't care if it sucks or not. Harley is so easy on the eyes.

I have an affinity for pale western European women. Freckles are a plus

Anybody see the redhead from American horror story season one and later was the blonde in walking dead? Alexandra Breckinridge?

@DarthLego I enjoyed it. It was no Dark Knight but I thought it was fun, and I am a bit sad we won't see Mark Strong as a Yellow Lantern Sinestro

Nope. Saw it three times in the theaters with the stubs to prove it. I find a lot of the people who understood the back story enjoyed it but if you didn't know a lot about Green Lantern in the first place you didn't like it. Still waiting for that teased sequel

Green Lantern is lame. Hence the problem with the film.

He would have made a great villain in that role.

Went to an early screening and unfortunately, the movie is a mess. It's basically a two hour music video, with maybe two complete scenes. The rest is more of a montage.

The only good performances are Viola Davis and Will Smith. Margo Robbie is doing an impression of Harley Quinn, but never owns the character while Jared Leto is just plain awful as the Joker. The rest are forgettable.

Also, there is a lot that was in the trailer that didn't make the actual movie. An example would be when Harley is bartending the squad. The part in the trailer isn't in the movie.

I prefer DC characters, but their movies are terrible, aside from select few Batman films. They do not know how to tell stories in film, and just cram too much fluff into them.
